Chemistry I University of Tsukuba
Introduction to general chemistry for life and environmental sciences.
・Chemistry I provides students with an in-depth knowledge of the principles of chemistry. Topics in Chemistry I include definition of Matter, Atomic Theory, Nuclear Chemistry, Nature of Light, Electronic Structures of Atoms, Periodicity, Chemical Bonding, Lewis Structure, and Molecular Structures. ・Course object is to understand an in-depth knowledge of principles of Chemistry and acquire application ability with knowledge of principles. is to enable learners how to 1. Name and classify compounds and molecules 2. Explain the structure of atoms. 4. Explain periodic trends about atomic properties. 5. Explain and describe chemical bonding theories 7. Draw the Lewis structure and predict chemical properties and write the resonance structures. 8. Determine the geometry of molecules using VSEPR theory and VB theory. 9. Employ VB Theory and Crystal Field Theory to explain properties of coordination compounds.
